Whew! Our first official Week of Sick (for this season) is over, and we survived. It always takes awhile to remember how to function during flu season, doesn’t it? Placing tissue boxes on every available surface, finding the thermometer and Motrin and Tylenol, re-memorizing the Family Practice phone number… I don’t have to tell you- you know how it goes…
As a sick-week souvenir, my breast sprouted gaping sores- thrush, I think, passed to me from my antibiotic slurping daughter. WE SHARE EVERYTHING.
That same baby? The one that is allergic to milk and had a double ear infection for DAYS before I took her in? She’s walking now. One day, she refused unless she had my finger to hold on to, the next she zombie-walks all over the house.
Also? My older two are addicted to tv/computer games. I am ruining their brains FOREVER, but it’s so peaceful. Everyday, I say to myself “I will allow less tv/computer games today”. But then? Then I don’t.
Confession: We got DVR and we’re all a bit in love with our TV. Tongue-kissing, can’t take our hands off each other kind of love.
That “tv-ruins-kids’-brains” data… that’s all just a racket, right?
